This question already has an answer here:

It is quite common to see people with colorfully decorated tallises in non-Orthodox (especially Conservative) shuls, but much less common to see the same thing in Orthodox shuls. Is there any halachic issue with having a decorated tallis gadol?

I'm pretty sure if you have a red or blue talith, the sSisSith have to be the same color, with a techeilath in the middle. I am not sure as to why Orthodox Jews don't wear colorful taleithim, but the closest I saw to colorful was a regular talith with blue stripes instead if black. In yemen, the teimonim wore a talith Jodol all day in and out of shul, some wore a black cloth with I assume black sSisSith on them.

taleithim? really? If you're going to be Makpid on the thau, you might at least be Makpid on the grammar. ;-) –  Seth J Mar 15 '13 at 17:21
Aye I'm typing on my phone as fast as I can. I'd rather stick with a word my phone gets that with a word that's going to be auto corrected 10times –  MoriDoweedhYaa3gob Mar 15 '13 at 17:25
